Students at University of Oregon Want Critical Race Theory Required for Graduation

Progressive ideas are so popular that they have to be made mandatory.

Campus Reform reports:

Should CRT be a graduation requirement? These student leaders say yes.Members of the Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO) are currently requesting to make Critical Race Theory (CRT) a graduation requirement for students.Associated Students of UO president Isaiah Boyd believes that the implementation of CRT in the university’s curriculum is “relevant to not only the educational value for students, but also to the wellbeing of our community,” Oregon Public Broadcasting quoted the student leader as saying.Though Boyd reportedly believes that CRT training will benefit students, not every member of the UO community agrees.Carter Cunningham, a student at the University of Oregon, is not surprised that his classmates want to push CRT on other students.“I’m aware of the people I go to school with. I’m okay if they want to have their own thoughts and feelings about things, but it is not their business to force them onto me and try and change my mind,” Cunningham told Campus Reform.Boyd is working alongside the university’s Provost office and the University Senate, according to Oregon Public Radio.The University Senate appears to side with ASUO on the issue of implementing CRT as a graduation requirement. On Dec. 1, the University Senate approved a resolution that “defends” the teaching of race, gender justice, and CRT in the classroom.As of now, students attending UO are already required to take “1 course in the US: Difference, Inequality and Agency category, and 1 course in the Global Perspectives category.”
